My DH who had lived in Scotland for several years, RAVED about these!! I made them exactly as written. It surprised me how quick and easy they were to do; and the lemon cream really highlights the flavor of these spicy scones. I think we found a new favorite. Thank you Bliss!
These were delicious scones! They had just the right amount of spice and weren't too sweet. I didn't add the raisin/currants because I didn't have them. Also, I patted the dough into a circle and cut into 8 wedges. We like a little sweeter spread, so I added a little bit of powdered sugar to the lemon cream to cut some of the tartness. My family loved these scones and gave them 2 big thumbs up. Thank you Bliss for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper! I'm glad that I chose to make this for Fall '06 PAC
